Wild Dogs

Indian Wild Dog
Wherever I travel on safari, a Wild Dog sighting is always guaranteed to create an extra buzz with Safari guests. 
Whether it’s Africa or India, when there are Wild dogs around the level of excited anticipation rises up to Tiger, Leopard and Lion levels.
And so it was when traveling back towards the entrance gate in Kanha Nation Park one morning, after a great five hour game drive. Earlier we’d tracked and found a Tigress and her four cubs, and seen a myriad of other creatures, now all thoughts were on a celebratory early lunch and a siesta. All that changed when we heard about this mating pair.

Cameras  came back out of bags, and heads were spinning in all directions searching for these illusive animals. Which dutifully appeared right at the last minute 500 meters from the gate. Fantastic.

Zanzibar

New for 2018, we are now able to offer a beach holiday in  Zanzibar. The perfect place to end your African safari.

And the best news of all, our newsletter subscribers can enjoy discounted rates in this idyllic beach location, when added to any of our African safaris.

We have partnered with a local family run business offering their privately owned collection of beautiful luxury hotels and resorts. Each has been inspired by the magic of Zanzibar and all are located on the Eastern side of the island away from the crowds.
As they say  'astunning recluse for the discerning traveler and a sanctuary for those in search of tranquility … a place to stimulate the senses and to experience the very best of the magical island of Zanzibar".
Alongside stunning beaches and luxurious accommodation, you can also enjoy a range of water sports, stunning spas and an affiliated PADI 5 star Dive Center. And if you would like to learn more about local culture and the history of Zanzibar (the Spice Island), we can also offer guided trips on the Island.
As ever our newsletter subscribers are eligible for discounted rates. Email Carol for more information.

Village visit India

Wednesday afternoon is traditionally market day in India’s tribal villages. 
In these rural communities the Wednesday market is the day for shopping. No supermarkets here. Folks walk for miles to shop once per week, buying anything from local fresh products to toys and clothes. 
For our safari guests, a visit to a buzzing local market offers a great opportunity to mingle with local people and see local culture that hasn’t changed for centuries.
Be there. Join one of our Indian safaris in 2018
